The Hurt Of Forever Love - Poem by Cecelia Weir

To love someone forever
Is too great to require.
For somewhere deep inside
Its you they never admire.

Some people have made it
With the one they really love.
But some people just don't
They get pushed and shoved.

You'll work for their attention
To have them by your side.
But the only time they want you
Is whenever they decide.

You can wait for a compliment
Until you're black and blue.
They'll say nice things of someone else
And live to criticize you.

They never really want you
Unless it makes them look good.
They'll give some undaunted reason
To convince you that you should.

Be what they want you to
Do what they tell you to do.
They serve you with mental anguish
And work the life out of you.

They seem never to get over
Whatever common childhood mess.
And it spills into their adulthood
To make your life regress.

They refer to other people
As rags upon the floor.
But treat them with high repect
The moment they hit their door.

They use them and abuse them
For whatever reasons they can.
And sadly never speak to them
Until their next command.

Coldhearted and careless
Their lives they never repent.
And because you can love and care
Its you that they resent.

Some love for many reasons
Some have no definite cause.
But to love someone without a heart
Hurts you the most of all.
